Greetings from on the road.
This is what may occasionally happen behind the scenes outside the development chambers.. Into the Finnish Museum of Games we shall take you...
We recently went to Tampere City for a special occasion. To meet staff of the upcoming Finnish Museum of Games for talks and interviews about a certain game.
Yeah, that’s right, there’s going to be Museum of Games opening in Finland in 2017, and UnReal World is one of the titles selected to the exhibition. The visit included also an interview to be archived for the future, for the future researchers - and generations. So I guess we are officially preserved now :)
The Finnish Museum of Games tells the story of how digital gaming in Finland started, how it developed over the years and how it made it to where it is now. You better take a look at Suomen Pelimuseo / The Finnish Museum of Games website[suomenpelimuseo.fi]
(brief english info also available) and go see the exhibition for yourself in 2017.Here's rare exhibit of me and Erkka (co-designer) in urban environment -- which is actually not that uncommon, but just rarely documented. The Finnish Museum of Games will open in the Vapriikki Museum Centre at Tampere in January 2017.
Game on!. Chapter 5 will be a little late
It is the convention period here in France, and it has required, require and will require quite a lot of my time.
Chapter 5 is almost done, I still have the voices to do. They will be done this week end so I can release the chapter 5 this week or at the beginning of the next.
Sorry for the wait.. Version 3.40 beta released
The time has come to release the first beta of UnReal World version 3.40. It's available as beta-branch you can opt into manually at will. And you should. Work with the new goodies and features continues, but things are nicely stable and good to go already.
The meat of version 3.40 are the quests and new kind of spells, but variety of tasty lesser cuts are to be found as well. For example treasure caches, meeting and seeing the spirits for real, and overhauled glossary of valuables. Some crucial bugfixes are in there as well, of course. Find the full changelog at the bottom of this post, but first...Here's how to get your hands on 3.40 beta:
(Should you encounter some crazy problems with the beta, you can always switch back to current stable version by choosing "NONE" from the beta dropdown box)
- Close UnReal World if you happen to be playing it right now.
- Right-click UnReal World in your Steam games library and select "Properties".
- Select "Betas" tab.
- Select "3.40 beta" in the dropdown box ('Select the beta you would like to opt into').
- Close the dialog, the game updates, and you are now ready to get into UnReal World 3.40.
Here comes the changelog. Let the adventures in the Far North continue. Cheers!
